Newspaper Digital Dollars Race

Posted in Boom by futureofprint on April 12, 2011

In terms of charting the changing balance between newspaper and online ad spending, worldwide newspaper ad expenditures were still 51 percent larger than the web’s in 2010. However, newspaper dollars are shrinking by 1.4 percent a year, as circulations continue to fall in developed markets, and readers shift to the internet.

At the same time, internet advertising continues to grow at breakneck pace, at a forecast average rate of 14.4 percent annually between 2010 and 2013. Zenith is forecasting newspaper ad spend to fall from $95.2 billion in 2010 to $91.2 billion in 2013, while internet ad expenditure rises from $63 billion to $94.5 billion over the same period.

As a result, Zenith is calling for global display ad spending to grow at an average of 16.4 percent a year to 2013, while paid search rises by 12.8 percent and classified by 10.2 percent.
